Please dont reccommend other members to do somthing without first doing it and doing a long term test. You owe it to other members who dont know much about thier cars to first test it to avoid negative effects from reaching others who have different tastes than you and me.

I'm not trying to be a A S S here, just looking out for others, since latly the forums are full of people bs'in.

I dont think your trying to be an A$$, and i do think people should be informed before making a descision regarding their car

Well after doing this to many of my cars I believe that it SHOULD be done when replacing your clutch. It only cost me $100 for resurfacing, bead blasting, lightening, pulling the pins and replacing them with new ones. Its like getting your rotors turned when you get a brake job. Just as a rotor gets glossy/glazed your flywheel will do the same thing and if it does not have a nice surface to grab onto it may slip.

what advantage does it have to have a good looking fly wheel?
Well its hard to see in the pic but when they turned my flywheel they surfaced it with a swirling grain look at the reflection of the light.

I was referring to the lightening not the resurfacing, It's normal to have a flywheel resurfaced when doing a clutch just like you said, lightening it on the other hand changes a whole lot of things such as Torque output, shifting stratagies, etc.

Maybe its just resurfaced but they needed to take off a lot of material to get it flush so its lighter because all that extra material was removed.

bingo because i had heat cracking so they had to go far enough so there was no more cracking

ps i wasnt recomeding the lightening just the resurfacing and lightening is just a side effect that WILL happen

well i got the car out yesterday for the first time but i had a code 14 and i cant find my service manual can someone help
Code 14 is the IAC Valve.
Try taking out the alternator fuse for about 40 seconds and then start your car, if the code comes back on again then you have a dirty EACV/EIC. Try cleaning it and all other parts like EGR valve aswell.
